Annapolis, Maryland 21404 

Dear Governor Hughes: 

Pursuant to Article 88B, Sections 9 and 10, of the Annota- 
ted Code of Maryland, the Maryland State Police respectfully submits 
the 1980 Uniform Crime Report for your information and review. 

The information presented here represents the sixth annual 
report produced by the Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting Program. The 
statistics presented were compiled from monthly reports submitted to 
Criminal Records-Central Repository by law enforcement agencies through- 
out Maryland. Every effort has been made to verify the accuracy and 
completeness of the published information. 

This information is presented with the hope that it will be 
of valuable assistance to law enforcement personnel and members of the 
Executive and Legislative branches of government. It should be help- 
ful in planning programs and legislation to combat criminal activity 
in Maryland. 

This report is dedicated to the public officials and law 
enforcement officers who have cooperated in the establishment and 
operation of the Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting Program. Their 
diligence and interest have made this report possible. 



Sincerely

IISfTRODUCTION 



The Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting Program is one of the 
steps that have been taken in the establishment of an effective State- 
wide Criminal Justice Information System. This particular phase of 
the CJ IS is oriented toward law enforcement and has brought about a 
statewide uniform method of collecting crime statistical data, pro- 
ducing a consolidated annual report concerning crime in Maryland, and 
reporting statewide crime statistics from a single agency to the 
Federal Bureau of Investigation. 

National Uniform Crime Reporting Program 

The counterpart of the statewide UCR Program is the National 
UCR Program which is under the direction of the Federal Bureau of In- 
vestigation. This national program is the result of a need for nation- 
wide and uniform compilation of law enforcement statistics. Uniform 
Crime Reports were first collected in 1930 after being developed by 
a committee of the International Association of Chiefs of Police. 

Today the IACP continues to serve in an advisory capacity 
to the FBI in its operation of the program. 

Crime statistics voluntarily submitted by individual law 
enforcement agencies from all fifty states are presented annually in 
the FBI's Uniform Crime Reports Publication entitled "Crime in the 
United States". 

In the last several years the FBI has been actively assist- 
ing individual states in the development of statewide programs of 
law enforcement statistics compatible with the National UCR Program. 
In taking advantage of the invaluable assistance provided, Maryland 
has developed its own statewide program for collection of law en- 
forcement statistics. 

Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting Program 

The Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting Program involves the 
uniform compilation, classification, and analysis of crime statistics 
reported by all law enforcement agencies of the state pursuant to 
guides and regulations prescribed by law. 

The responsibility and authority for collection and dissemi- 
nation of UCR data was given to the Maryland Department of Public 
Safety and Correctional Services (State Police) under Article 88B, 
Sections 9 and 10, of the Annotated Code of Maryland. The UCR Program 
became operational January 1, 1975. 



Purpose and Objectives 

In keeping with the recommendation of the President's Com- 
mission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice, the 
Maryland UCR Program was planned for eventual growth into a complete 
and integrated offender based Criminal Justice Information System. 
Under this program, each offender arrested in Maryland will be tracked 
through the entire criminal justice system from time of arrest through 
the courts to the correctional system where his exit (parole, expira- 
tion of sentence, etc.) will be recorded. In this manner, a complete 
"criminal history" on individual offenders will be available for use 
by the police, courts, and correctional agencies in Maryland. In 
addition, statistical data derived from the CJIS Program will provide 
assistance in determining the overall efficiency of the criminal jus- 
tice system in Maryland and will make effective management studies 
possible. 



are 



The fundamental objectives of the Maryland UCR Program 



1. Inform the governor, legislature, other governmental 
officials, and the public as to the nature of the 
crime problem in Maryland - its magnitude and its 
trends. 

2. Provide law enforcement administrators with criminal 
statistics for administrative and operational use. 

3. Determine who commits crimes by age, sex, race and 
other attributes in order to find the proper focus 
for crime prevention and enforcement. 

4. Provide base data and statistics to measure the 
workload and effectiveness of Maryland's Criminal 
Justice System. 

5. Provide base data and statistics to measure the 
effects of prevention and deterrence programs. 

6. Provide base data and statistics for research to 
improve the efficiency, effectiveness and perfor- 
mance of criminal justice agencies. 

7. Provide base data to assist in the assessment of 
social and other causes of crime for the develop- 
ment of theories of criminal behavior. 

8. Provide the FBI with complete UCR data to be in- 
cluded in the national crime reports. 



Development 

Effective September, 1972, the first federal grant was 
awarded to the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services 
(State Police) by the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration to 
provide money to initiate a Statewide Uniform Crime Reporting Program 
in Maryland. A committee for the implementation of this Program was 
then established by State Police. 

The committee made studies of the federal program, as well 
as several state UCR Programs, which were operational at that time. 
Forms, tally books, and the Maryland UCR Manual were developed, prin- 
ted, and distributed to all contributing agencies. Questionnaires 
concerning each law enforcement agency's record keeping systems were 
distributed to determine their capability to fully participate in the 
State Program. 

In September, 1974, an additional grant was awarded to the 
Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services (State Police) 
by the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration for the purpose of 
hiring Field Records Representatives to serve as liaison officers 
between the State Program and the contributing law enforcement agen- 
cies. Also, additional clerical support for the State Program was 
provided in the grant. 

During the developmental phase, several workshops were 
held in various parts of the State to present the UCR Program in de- 
tail to participating agencies. Since that time, supplemental work- 
shops have been held as needed. 

During 1975, the first year of operation, the UCR Staff 
concentrated its efforts in assisting requesting law enforcement 
agencies in devising or improving their record keeping systems. The 
UCR Staff continues to keep the agencies trained in UCR and to pro- 
vide assistance where needed. Agencies contributing to the UCR Pro- 
gram have increased from 102 agencies in 1975 to 134 in 1980. The 
UCR Section collects crime information from these 134 agencies and 
publishes quarterly releases reflecting crime trends. In addition, 
this is the sixth annual report produced by the UCR Staff containing 
an in-depth analysis of all information collected in the UCR Program. 

During 1980, statistics were collected concerning Battered 
Spouses, and a third Maryland Battered Spouse Report was produced. 
Also, during 1980, statistics were collected concerning Arson, and 
the second Maryland Arson Report was produced. 



Reporting Procedures 

Under the Maryland UCR Program, law enforcement agencies 
are required to submit specified Uniform Crime Reports. The necess- 
ary information for each of the required reports is gathered from 
each agency's record of complaints, investigations, and arrests. 



For those agencies desiring assistance in developing sound record 
systems, or improving their present system, a copy of the FBI's 
Manual of Police Records has been provided, along with training of 
records personnel by UCR Field Representatives. 

Crime data and information is submitted by state, county, 
and municipal law enforcement agencies on a daily, monthly, and 
annual basis. The daily report consists of the fingerprints of all 
persons arrested, detained, or charged with any crime or offense in 
Maryland. 

On a monthly basis, organized state, municipal, and county 
law enforcement agencies report the number of offenses known to them 
in the following crime categories: 

(1) Criminal Homicide 

(2) Forcible Rape 

(3) Robbery 

(4) Assault 

(5) Breaking or Entering 

(6) Larceny 

(7) Motor Vehicle Theft 

(8) Arson* 

The count of offenses is taken from the record of complaints 
received by law enforcement agencies from victims, witnesses, other 
sources, or discovered by them during their own operation. Complaints 
determined by subsequent investigation to be unfounded are eliminated 
from the count. The resulting number of "actual offenses known to law 
enforcement agencies" in these crime categories is reported without 
regard to whether anyone is arrested, stolen property is recovered, 
local prosecutive policy, or any other consideration. Reported offen- 
ses are recorded by the municipality and county in which they occur. 
Municipal law enforcement agencies report those crimes which are com- 
mitted within the cities; county law enforcement agencies and state 
police report those crimes which occur in the counties outside the 
city. Law enforcement agencies also report on a monthly basis, supple- 
mental offense information such as the value of property stolen and 
recovered as well as circumstances surrounding homicides and other 
pertinent data. Additional monthly reports of persons arrested are 
submitted. These reports provide information concerning the age, sex 
and race of persons arrested by each individual law enforcement agency. 
Also, a police disposition of all juveniles arrested is collected. 

In addition, police employee data is collected on an annual 
basis. 



Verification Process 

An obvious concern in the collection of crime statistics 
for law enforcement agencies throughout the state is the uniformity 

♦Monthly arson reports are submitted for law enforcement agencies by 
the State Fire Marshal's Office and designated county agencies. 



and accuracy of data received. Program aides such as guides and in- 
structions do not necessarily guarantee the accuracy and correctness 
of the reports submitted by the contributors. Additional controls, 
therefore, are necessary. 

Each report received by the UCR Section is recorded, examined 
and verified for mathematical accuracy, and possibly more important, 
for reasonableness. The verification process includes numerous checks 
to ensure the validity of information. The elimination of duplication 
of reporting by individual contributors receives particular attention. 
Minor errors are corrected by telephone contact with the contributors. 
Substantial variations and errors are adjusted through personal con- 
tacts with individual contributing agencies. The personal contacts are 
invaluable to the accuracy and quality of reporting. Field Representa- 
tives are engaged in a constant educational effort, and as such, provide 
a vital link between the UCR Program and the contributor. 



Population Data 

The computation of crime rates as they appear in this report 
by municipality, county, and state are based on 1980 population esti- 
mates provided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation through the co- 
operation and assistance of the United States Bureau of Census. 

Monthly and annual Uniform Crime Reports are received from 
134 municipal, county, and state law enforcement agencies in Maryland. 



Limitations of a Uniform Crime Reporting Program 

Information currently collected by the Maryland Program is 
generally the same as that gathered by the National system, and the 
methods of classifying and scoring offenses and arrests are the same. 
This readily enables comparisons with other states and with the nation, 
as a whole. However, there are limitations to the information collec- 
ted which should be clearly understood before any conclusions are drawn 
from the UCR data presented in this report. 

The main goal of the UCR Program is to furnish police adminis- 
trators with a measure of their activities and operational problems as 
indicated by the number of reported offenses, arrests, clearances, and 
the like. 

A first step in the control of crime is to ascertain the 
true dimensions of the problem. However, present statistics as gather- 
ed by the UCR Program measure neither the real incidence of crime nor 
the full amount of economic loss to victims. Information regarding 
number of offenses and clearances is collected only for the eight 
Part I crimes. Value and type of property stolen and recovered data 
is requested only for property stolen in Part I offenses. For Part II 
offenses (except non-aggravated assault), the only information sub- 
mitted is the number of arrests for these crimes according to the age, 



sex, and race of the subject. Consequently, there is no record of the 
actual number of these offenses occurring, nor is there a calculation 
made for property loss, as in cases of vandalism and embezzlement. 

The Crime Index does not explicitly take into account the 
varying degrees of seriousness of its seven components. Each crime 
receives the same weight as it is added to the Index. Consequently, 
an auto theft is counted the same as a murder, and an aggravated 
assault is weighted equally with an attempted breaking or entering. 
Any review of crime must consider the volume, rate, and trend of each 
offense that comprises the Index and the relationship between these 
seven crimes*. 

The Maryland and National Uniform Crime Reporting Programs 
are designed to measure offenses committed and persons arrested, and 
difficulties can arise if this distinction is not kept clearly in 
mind. Crimes relate to events, but arrests relate to persons. Un- 
like traffic violations where there is usually one event, with one 
violation and one offender, a single criminal act can involve several 
crimes, several offenders, and several victims. Relating specific 
crimes to the criminal, or specific offenses to characteristics of 
those arrested, is generally beyond the scope of the present Uniform 
Crime Reporting system. 

Juvenile crime and arrest statistics, because of their 
nature, are another area of misunderstanding. Many juvenile offen- 
ders are handled informally and, as a consequence, inaccurate or 
incomplete recording of the event or action may result. Procedures 
for handling juveniles vary between departments, more so than the 
handling of adult offenders. Furthermore, the degree of juvenile 
involvement in solved offenses is probably seriously misunderstood, 
because juvenile participation in clearances is recorded only when 
juveniles are exclusively involved. When both adults and juveniles 
are subjects in a clearance, the juvenile participation is not re- 
ported. 

The preceding comments should not be viewed as an indict- 
ment of the Uniform Crime Reporting Program which, admittedly, is 
designed for the operational requirements of law enforcement agencies. 
While current methods of gathering and reporting crime and arrest data 
provide a less than complete picture of criminality in our society, 
there is at present no other informational system in general use that 
will more adequately perform this task. 



^Arson is not used at this time in computing the Crime Index.

CLASSIFICATION OF OFFENSES 



Uniformity in reporting under the Maryland System is based 
upon the proper classification of offenses by police. 

The adoption of the Federal System of Uniform Crime Report- 
ing included the utilization of the offense classifications of that 
system. Law enforcement in this state has made accurate application 
of those classifications in the reports submitted to the Maryland 
Uniform Crime Reporting System. 

Offenses in Uniform Crime Reporting 

Offenses in Uniform Crime Reporting are divided into two 
groupings designated as Part I and Part II offenses. Crime Index 
offenses are included among the Part I offenses. Offense and arrest 
information is reported for the Part I offenses on a monthly basis, 
whereas only arrest information is reported for Part II offenses. 

The Part I offenses are as follows: 

1. CRIMINAL HOMICIDE -- (a) Murder and non-negligent 
manslaughter: All willful felonious homicides as 
distinguished from deaths caused by negligence. 
Excludes attempts to kill, assaults to kill, sui- 
cides, accidental deaths, or justifiable homicides. 
Justifiable homicides are limited to: (1) The 
killing of a person by a law enforcement officer 

in line of duty; and (2) The killing of a person 
in the act of committing a felony by a private 
citizen, (b) Manslaughter by negligence: Any 
death which the police investigation established 
was primarily attributable to gross negligence of 
some individual other than the victim. 

2. FORCIBLE RAPE — The carnal knowledge of a female, 
forcibly and against her will in the categories of 
rape by force, assault to rape, and attempted rape. 
Excludes statutory offenses (no force used - victim 
under age of consent). 

3. ROBBERY -- Stealing or taking anything of value from 
the care, custody, or control of a person by force or 
by violence or by putting in fear, such as strong-arm 
robbery, stickups, armed robbery, assaults to rob, 
and attempts to rob. 

4. AGGRAVATED ASSAULT -- Assault with intent to kill or 
for the purpose of inflicting severe bodily injury 
by shooting, cutting, stabbing, maiming, poisoning, 
scalding, or by the use of acids, explosives, or 
other means. Excludes simple assaults. 



11 



5. BURGLARY - BREAKING OR ENTERING -- Burglary, house- 
breaking, safecracking, or any breaking or unlawful 
entry of a structure with the intent to commit a 
felony or a theft. Includes attempted forcible entry. 

6. LARCENY-THEFT (except motor vehicle theft) -- The un- 
lawful taking, carrying, leading, or riding away of 
property from the possession or constructive possession 
of another. Thefts of bicycles, automobile accessories, 
shoplifting, pocket-picking, or any stealing of property 
or article which is not taken by force and violence or 
by fraud. Excludes embezzlement, "con" games, forgery, 
worthless checks, etc. 

7. MOTOR VEHICLE THEFT -- Unlawful taking or stealing or 
attempted theft of a motor vehicle. A motor vehicle 

is a self-propelled vehicle that travels on the surface 
but not on rails. Specifically excluded from this cate- 
gory are motor boats, construction equipment, airplanes, 
and farming equipment. 

8. ARSON -- Include all arrests for violations of state 
laws and municipal ordinances relating to arson and 
attempted arson. Include: any willful or malicious 
burning or attempts to burn, with or without intent 
to defraud, a dwelling house, church, college, jail, 
meeting house, public building or any building, ship 
or other vessel, motor vehicle or aircraft; contents 
of building, personal property of another, goods or 
chattels, crops, trees, fences, gates, grain, vege- 
table products, lumber, woods, cranberry bogs, marshes, 
meadows, etc. 

If personal injury results from the arson, the situa- 
tion would be classified as aggravated assault. In 
the event a death results from arson, the incident 
would be classified as murder. 

The Part II Offenses are as follows: 

9. OTHER ASSAULTS -- Assaults and attempted assaults which 
do not result in serious or aggravated injury to the 
victim are included as other assaults. Examples of 
local jurisdiction offense titles which would be in- 
cluded in "other assaults" are: Simple assault, minor 
assault, assault and battery, injury by culpable negli- 
gence, resisting or obstructing an officer, intimidation 
coercion, hazing, attempts to commit above.

CRIME FACTORS 



Statistics gathered under the Uniform Crime Reporting 
Program are submitted by the law enforcement agencies of Maryland 
and project a statewide view of crime. Awareness of the presence 
of certain crime factors, which may influence the resulting volume 
and type of statistics presented, is necessary if fair and equitable 
conclusions are to be drawn. These crime influencing factors are 
present, to some degree, in every community and their presence 
affects, in varying degrees, the crime experience of that community. 
Attempts at comparison of crime figures between communities should 
not be made without first considering the individual factors present 
in each community. 

Crime, as an outgrowth of society, remains a social prob- 
lem of grave concern and the police are limited in their role to its 
suppression and detection. As stated by the President's Commission 
on Law Enforcement and Administration of Criminal Justice in their 
report "The Challenge of Crime in a Free Society" (1967 - Page 92): 

"But the fact that the police deal daily with crime 
does not mean that they have unlimited power to 
prevent it, or reduce it, or deter it. The police 
did not create and cannot resolve the social condi- 
tions that stimulate crime. They did not start and 
cannot stop the convulsive social changes that are 
taking place in America. They do not enact the laws 
that they are required to enforce, nor do they dis- 
pose of the criminals they arrest. The police are 
only one part of the criminal justice system; the 
criminal justice system is only one part of the 
government; and the government is only one part of 
society. Insofar as crime is a social phenomenon, 
crime prevention is the responsibility of every part 
of society. The criminal process is limited to case 
by case operations, one criminal or one crime at a 
time. " 

Set forth below are some of the conditions which will, by 
type and volume, affect the crime that occurs from place to place: 

Density and size of the community population and the 
metropolitan area of which it is a part. 

Composition of the population with reference particu- 
larly to age, sex and race. 

Economic status of the population. 

Relative stability of population, including commuters, 
seasonal, and other transient types. 



19 



Climate, including seasonal weather conditions. 

Educational, recreational, and religious characteristics. 

Standards governing appointments to the police force. 

Policies of the prosecuting officials and the courts. 

Attitude of the public toward law enforcement problems. 

The administrative and investigative efficiency of the 
local law enforcement agency, including the degree of 
adherence to crime reporting standards. 

Organization and cooperation of adjoining and overlapping 
police jurisdictions.

CRIME INDEX 



The tabulations presented in the tables, graphs, and charts 
in this publication indicate the volume and distribution of crime in 
Maryland on the basis of a Crime Index. The crime figures are broken 
down by agency, county, regional, and state totals. 

The total number of criminal acts that occur is unknown, but 
those that are reported to law enforcement provide the first means of 
a count. Not all crimes are of sufficient importance to be significant 
in an index; and not all important crimes occur with enough regularity 
to be meaningful in an index. With these considerations in mind, the 
crimes below were selected as a group to furnish a convenient measure 
of the crime problem: 

1. Murder and Nonnegligent Manslaughter 

2. Forcible Rape 

3. Robbery 

4. Aggravated Assault 

5. Breaking or Entering 

6. Larceny-Theft 

7. Motor Vehicle Theft 

8. Arson* 

These offenses were selected because they are serious either by nature 
or frequency of occurrence. 

The crime counts set forth in this publication are actual 
offenses established by police investigation. When police receive a 
complaint of a crime and the follow-up investigation discloses no 
crime occurred, it is "unfounded". 

In 1980, police investigations "unfounded" 8 percent of the 
complaints concerning Index Offenses, ranging from 1 percent in the 
Aggravated Assault category to 16 percent in the Motor Vehicle Theft 
category. When compared to 1979, there were 1 percent "unfounded" 
in the Aggravated Assault category, and 14 percent in the Motor Ve- 
hicle Theft category. 



Calculation of Rates and Trends 

The Uniform Crime Reporting Program provides data for police 
executives to measure local problems. To facilitate this function, it 
is sometimes necessary to convert the data into rates, percentages, or 
trends. Certain guidelines are presented. 

Crime Rates 

One of the most meaningful crime statistics is the Crime 
Rate. This rate is the number of offenses per 100,000 inhabitants. 

*1980 arson statistics are not included in the Crime Index in this 
report. 

21 



This rate can be calculated regardless of the number of inhabitants 
in your city or county. To compute rates, divide your city's popu- 
lation by 100,000 and divide the number of offenses in each class 
by that answer. The answer is the number of offenses in each class 
per 100,000 and is your Crime Rate for that offense. 

Example: 

a. Population for your jurisdiction 75,000 

b. Number of burglaries for your 
jurisdiction for a year 215 

Divide 75,000 by 100,000 = .75 

Divide 215 by .75 = 286.7 

Your burglary rate: 286.7 per 100,000 inhabitants 

The number of .75 can now be divided into your totals in any offense 
class to produce a Crime Rate for that offense. 

This same computation can be completed to give you arrest rates per 
100,000 inhabitants. 

Clearance Rates 

The percentage of crimes cleared by arrest is obtained by 
dividing the number of offenses cleared by the number of actual 
offenses. This answer is then multiplied by 100. An example of 
this calculation is: 

a. Number of clearances in robbery 38 

b. Number of actual robberies 72 

Divide 38 by 72 = .528 
Multiply: .528 x 100 = 52.8 

Your percentage of clearance in robbery is 52.8%. 



22 



Percent of Change 

The method most commonly used to compare crime statistics 
for the current year with any prior year is the Percent of Change. 
This Percent is calculated by subtracting the prior year's data from 
the current year's data and dividing the resulting figure by the 
prior year's data. The answer is then multiplied by 100. An example 
of this calculation is: 

a. 1980 Robberies 16,462 

b. 1979 Robberies 13,745 



Subtract 13,745 from 16,462 - 2,717 

Divide 2,717 by 13,745 = + .198 

Multiply + .198 x 100 - + 19.8 

Your Percent of Change in Robbery is +19.8 or 
20 percent when rounded. 



23 



MARYLAND 
OFFENSE DATA 



CRIME INDEX OFFENSES 



Volume 



A total of 277,828 Crime Index Offenses were reported to 
law enforcement agencies in Maryland during the Calendar Year 1980. 
This represents an increase of 6 percent when compared to the 1979 
data which was comprised of a total of 261,268 Crime Index Offenses. 

The Crime Index Offenses referred to here represent the 
most common problem to law enforcement. They are serious crimes by 
their nature, volume, or frequency of occurrence. Basically, they 
can be categorized as Violent Crime, which include Murder, Forcible 
Rape, Robbery, and Aggravated Assault, or as Property Crimes, which 
include Breaking or Entering, Larceny, and Motor Vehicle Theft. 

An analysis of the total Index by month in 1980 shows that 
August had the highest frequency of occurrence and February had the 
lowest. Compared to 1979, July had the highest frequency and Febru- 
ary had the lowest. 



Violent Crime 

Violent Crimes involve the element of personal confronta- 
tion between the perpetrator and the victim. Because of their very 
nature, Violent Crimes are considered more serious than Property 
Crimes. These offenses accounted for 13 percent of the total Crime 
Index for 1980, the same as in 1979. 

Analyzing the Violent Crimes by month reveals August had 
the greatest frequency of occurrence, while February had the lowest. 
1979 showed October to have the highest frequency and February to 
have the lowest. 



Property Crime 

The number of Property Crimes reported during 1980 was 
more than 6 times greater than the number of Violent Crimes reported 
As a group, Property Crimes made up 87 percent of the total Crime 
Index, the same as in 1979. 

A monthly analysis showed August had the highest frequency 
of occurrence and February had the lowest. During 1979, July was 
the highest and February was the lowest. 



Rates 

Crime Rates relate the incidence of crime to the resident 
population. Many other factors which may contribute to the volume 
and type of crime in a given jurisdiction are not incorporated here, 
but are shown in the section entitled "Crime Factors". 

27 



In 1980, the Crime Rate for Maryland was 6,627.6 victims 
for every 100,000 population. This represents a 5 percent increase 
in Crime Rate when compared to 1979 with 6,297.2 victims per 100,000 
population. 

The 1980 Rate for the Violent Crime group was established 
at 852.2 victims per 100,000 inhabitants, a 7 percent increase com- 
pared with 1979. The Property Crime group resulted in a Rate of 
5,775.4 per 100,000 inhabitants. This results in a 5 percent in- 
crease when compared to 1979. 



Clearances 

For Uniform Crime Reporting purposes, a crime is cleared 
when police have identified the offender, have evidence to charge 
him and actually take him into custody. Solutions of crimes are 
also recorded in exceptional instances where some element beyond 
police control precludes formal charges against the offender, such 
as the victim's refusal to prosecute or local prosecution is de- 
clined because the subject is being prosecuted elsewhere for a 
crime committed in another jurisdiction. The arrest of one person 
can clear several crimes or several persons may be arrested in the 
process of solving one crime. 

Maryland law enforcement agencies cleared 20 percent of 
all Index Offenses reported to them in 1980. During 1979, police 
cleared 22 percent of the Index Offenses reported. 

The Violent Crimes recorded a 41 percent clearance rate 
as compared to 1979 with a 44 percent clearance rate. The Property 
Crime group revealed a 17 percent clearance rate in 1980. During 
1979, police cleared 19 percent of the Property Crimes. 

Considering individually the 1980 Violent Crime solution 
rate, it was determined that police were successful in solving 77 
percent of the Murder, 54 percent of the Rapes, 23 percent of the 
Robberies, and 57 percent of the Aggravated Assaults. The Property 
Crime solution rates were 17 percent for Breaking or Entering, 18 
percent for Larceny, and 15 percent for Motor Vehicle Theft. 

The relatively high clearance rate for Violent Crimes as 
compared to non-violent Property Crimes is in part attributable to 
the volume difference between the two. Property Crime volume is 
much greater than that of Violent Crime and police investigation 
of Violent Crime is usually more intense. The element of confron- 
tation between victim and perpetrator, as well as witness identifi- 
cation of the perpetrator, also contributes to this higher rate of 
solution. 



28 



Juvenile Clearances 

In 1980, the clearance involvement of those persons under 
the age of 18 represented 29 percent of all cases cleared, compared 
to 32 percent in 1979. 

The juvenile clearances for the Violent Crime category re- 
presented 17 percent of those cases solved, the same as in 1979, with 
5 percent clearances in Murder cases, 9 percent clearances in Rape 
cases, 26 percent clearances in Robbery cases, and 15 percent clear- 
ances in Aggravated Assault cases. 

The Property Crime clearances involving juveniles, repre- 
sented 33 percent of those cases solved, as compared to 37 percent 
in 1979, with 35 percent in Breaking or Entering cases, 33 percent 
in Larceny cases, and 33 percent in Motor Vehicle Theft cases. 



Stolen Property Value 

The total value of Property Stolen during 1980 was 
$158,248,504 which resulted in a 35 percent increase over 1979. 
Recovered Property amounted to $38,937,892 which is 25 percent of 
the total stolen, resulting in a $119,310,612 property loss to 
victims in the State of Maryland during 1980. This property loss 
results in a 55 percent increase when compared to the property 
loss in 1979.

MURDER 




MURDER 



Murder is defined as the willful (nonnegligent) killing of 
one human being by another. As a general rule, any death due to a 
fight, argument, quarrel, assault, or commission of a crime is counted 
as a Murder. This offense is scored on the basis of police investiga- 
tion without regard to the findings of a court or jury or the decision 
of a prosecutor. Assaults to Murder and Attempted Murders are counted 
as Aggravated Assaults. Suicide, accidental deaths and justifiable 
homicides are also excluded. 



Volume 

In 1980, a total of 399 Murders were reported to law enforce- 
ment agencies in Maryland. This compares to 406 Murders in 1979 and 
results in a decrease of 1.7 percent. Murder comprises 1 percent of 
the total Violent Crime category and .2 percent of the total Crime 
Index. 

A monthly analysis of Murder indicates that July had the 
highest frequency and April and October had the lowest frequencies. 
In 1979, March had the highest frequency and August had the lowest 
frequency. 

Rate 

In 1980, there were 9.5 victims of Murder for every 100,000 
residents in Maryland. During 1979, we reported a Murder Rate of 9.8 
victims per 100,000 population resulting in a 3.1 percent decrease. 

Nature 

Murder victims in 1980 were male in 78 percent of all cases, 
while female victims comprised 22 percent of the total. During 1979, 
74 percent of all cases were male, while female victims comprised 26 
percent. 

64.4 percent of all Murder victims were black, . while 34.3 
percent were white and 1.3 percent were of other races. This compares 
to 67.5 percent black, 31.3 percent white, and 1.2 percent of other 
races, in 1979. 

The largest number of Murders (85) occurred in the 25-29 
age group, which comprised 21.3 percent of the total. 

In 1980, firearms predominated as the weapon most often 
used in the commission of Murder in Maryland, representing 58.4 
percent of the total. This compares to 56.9 percent of the total 



38 



during 1979. 46.9 percent of the total were committed with handguns 
while 27.1 percent were committed with a knife or cutting instrument. 
10.0 percent with other dangerous weapons, and 4.5 percent were com- 
mitted with personal weapons, such as hands, fists, feet, etc. In 
1979, 46.6 percent were committed with handguns, while 28.1 percent 
were committed with a knife or cutting instrument, 7.1 percent with 
other dangerous weapons, and 4.9 percent with personal weapons. 



Clearances 

In 1980, 77 percent of all Murders were cleared with 5 per- 
cent of the total solved involving juvenile arrests. This compares 
to 1979 with a 76 percent clearance rate and 4 percent of the total 
cleared involving juveniles. 

Persons Arrested 

A total of 391 persons were arrested in Maryland for Murder 
during 1980. This represents a 6.3 percent increase when compared to 
1979, with a total of 368 persons arrested for Murder. 

Of this total, 90 percent were males and 10 percent female. 
69 percent of the total were black while 31 percent were white. 89 
percent were adults and 11 percent were juveniles. 

The age group with the highest frequency of arrests was the 
25-29 group with 76 arrests or 19 percent of the total.

RAPE 




RAPE 



Rape is the carnal knowledge of a female forcibly and 
against her will. In Uniform Crime Reporting, Rape is divided in- 
to two categories: (1) Rape by Force; (2) Attempt to commit Forci- 
ble Rape. Statutory Rape or the carnal knowledge of a female with 
no force used and where the victim is under the legal age of consent, 
as well as other sex offenses, are not included in this category. 



Volume 

During 1980, 1,681 Forcible Rapes were reported to Mary- 
land law enforcement agencies. This compares to 1,628 Rapes during 
1979 and results in a 3 percent increase. 

Rape accounted for 5 percent of the Violent Crimes and .6 
percent of the total Crime Index. 

The month of August showed the highest frequency of Rapes . 
while February and March showed the lowest. In 1979, September had 
the highest frequency and January the lowest. 



Rate 

A Crime Rate, in its proper perspective, is a victim risk 
rate since it equates the number of crimes per unit of population. 
In 1980, 80.2 out of ewery 100,000 females in Maryland were reported 
Rape victims, as compared to 1979 when 78.5 per 100,000 female popu- 
lation were reported victims. This results in a 2.2 percent increase 
in the Rate of Forcible Rapes. 



Nature 

During 1980, 78 percent of all Rapes were actual Rapes by 
Force while 22 percent were attempts or assaults to commit Forcible 
Rape. In 1979, 76 percent of the total were Forcible Rapes while 
24 percent were attempts or assaults to commit Forcible Rape. 



Clearances 

In Calendar Year 1980, 54 percent of the total number of 
Rapes were cleared by arrest with 9 percent of the total solved in- 
volving juvenile arrests. In 1979, 57 percent of the total Rapes 
were cleared and 10 percent of the total cleared involved juveniles. 



46 



Persons Arrested 

In 1980, there were 869 persons arrested for Rape in Maryland. 
In comparison to 1979, with 927, there was a 6.3 percent decrease in the 
number of arrests. 

83 percent of the total number were 18 years of age or older, 
while the remaining 17 percent were juveniles. 64 percent of the total 
were black and 36 percent white. 

The greatest concentration of arrests was in the 25-29 age 
group with 148 arrests or 17 percent of the total.

ROBBERY 




ROBBERY 



Robbery is defined as the taking, or attempting to take, 
anything of value from the care, custody, or control of a person or 
persons by force or threat of force or violence and/or by putting 
the victim in fear. The element of personal confrontation is always 
present in this crime. Under the Uniform Crime Reporting Program, 
all attempts to commit Robbery are included. Robberies are reported 
in four general categories -- firearms; knife or cutting instrument; 
other dangerous weapons; and hands, fists, feet, etc. As a general 
rule, Robbery differs from Larceny in that it is aggravated by the 
element of force or threat of force. 

Robbery, as a Crime of Violence, has a serious impact on 
the victim. In many instances serious injury results. Oftentime, 
with or without physical injury, the victim suffers mental anguish. 
Such damage is immeasurable. 



Volume 

During 1980, there were 16,462 actual Robbery offenses 
reported to Maryland law enforcement agencies. In 1979, there were 
13,745 Robberies, which results in an increase of 20 percent. 

Robbery accounted for 46 percent of the Violent Crime 
category and 5.9 percent of the total Crime Index. 

A monthly comparison reveals that December had the high- 
est frequency of Robberies, while April had the lowest frequency. 
In 1979, January had the highest frequency and May had the lowest. 



Rate 

The 1980 Robbery Rate was 392.7 per 100,000 innabitants. 
This compares to a rate of 331.3 per 100,000 population in 1979, 
and results in an 18.5 percent increase in the Robbery Rate. 



Nature 

During 1980, 60.9 percent of the Robberies were committed 
in the street, while only 1.5 percent were Bank Robberies. This 
compares to 1979 when 62.8 percent were committed in the street, and 
1.5 percent were Bank Robberies. 

Bank Robberies accounted for the highest average value 
loss, $4,453 in 1980. The average value loss for total Robberies 
was $423. 



52 



Armed perpetrators were responsible for 54.7 percent of 
the Robbery offenses while 45.3 percent were muggings or strong- 
armed Robberies. This compares to 1979, when 53.0 percent invol- 
ved Armed Robberies and 47.0 percent were strong-arm. 

An analysis of Armed Robbery by type of weapon indicates 
that the use of firearms was predominate, accounting for 74.7 percent 
of all Armed Robberies. Knives or cutting instruments made up 13.7 
percent while other dangerous weapons accounted for 11.6 percent of 
all Armed Robberies. In 1979, 71.2 percent of the total Armed Robber- 
ies were committed with firearms, 15.9 percent with knives or cutting 
instruments, and 12.9 percent with other dangerous weapons. 



Clearances 

In 1980, 23 percent of the total number of Robberies were 
cleared by arrest with 29 percent of the total solved involving a 
juvenile arrest. In 1979, 26 percent of the Robberies were cleared 
and 29 percent of those involved juveniles. 

24 percent of the Armed Robberies were cleared with 12 
percent of the total solved involving a juvenile arrest. 23 percent 
of the strong-arm Robberies recorded a clearance, while 43 percent 
of the total involved juveniles. 



Persons Arrested 

4,964 persons were arrested for Robbery in Maryland during 
1980. In comparison with 1979, and a total of 4,995 persons arrested, 
there was a .6 percent decrease in Robbery arrests. 

60 percent of the total number of persons arrested for 
Robbery were adults, while the remaining 40 percent were juveniles. 

80 percent of the total persons arrested were black and 20 
percent were white. 95 percent were males and 5 percent females. 

The greatest concentration of arrests was in the 16 year 
old age group, which comprised 12 percent of the total persons arres- 
ted for Robbery.

AGGRAVATED 
ASSAULT 




AGGRAVATED ASSAULT 

Aggravated Assault, as defined under the Maryland Uniform 
Crime Reporting Program, is an unlawful attack by one person upon 
another for the purpose of inflicting severe or aggravated bodily 
injury. This type of assault usually is accompanied by the use of 
a weapon or by means likely to produce death or great bodily harm. 
Attempts are included since it is not necessary that any injury 
result when a gun, knife, or other weapon is used which would re- 
sult in serious personal injury if the crime were successfully com- 
pleted. Also included in this category are all attempted Murders. 

Any assault in which hands, fists and feet are used and 

no serious injury to the victim results, is classified as a simple 

assault which falls into the Part II category, and is not included 
as a Crime Index Offense. 

Volume 

During 1980, a total of 17,182 Aggravated Assaults were 
reported to Maryland law enforcement agencies. In comparison, 
there were 17,337 Aggravated Assaults in 1979, resulting in a 1 
percent decrease. 

Aggravated Assault made up 48 percent of the Violent 
Crime category and 6.2 percent of the total Crime Index. 

The month of August had the highest frequency of Aggra- 
vated Assaults occurring while February had the lowest. During 
1979, September and October showed the highest frequencies and 
February showed the lowest. 



Rate 

For each 100,000 persons in Maryland during 1980, there 
were 409.9 victims of Aggravated Assault. During 1979, there were 
417.9 Aggravated Assault victims per 100,000 population. A com- 
parison of the two years results in a 1.9 percent decrease. 



Nature 

In 1980, 22.1 percent of the Aggravated Assaults were 
committed with the use of a firearm. A knife or cutting instru- 
ment was used in 23.9 percent of Assaults, and 33.6 percent were 
committed with other dangerous weapons. The remaining 20.4 per- 
cent were committed with personal weapons such as hands, v fists, 
feet, etc. These figures compare to 1979, when 21.6 percent of 
Aggravated Assaults were committed with a firearm, 26.2 percent 



58 



with a knife or cutting instrument, 32.5 percent with other dangerous 
weapons, and 19.7 percent with personal weapons. 



Clearances 

57 percent of the total number of Aggravated Assaults were 
cleared by arrest with 15 percent of the total clearances involving 
juveniles. As compared to 1979, 56 percent of the total were cleared, 
and of those cleared, 14 percent involved juveniles. 



Persons Arrested 

There were 5,815 arrests for Aggravated Assault in Mary- 
land during 1980. This results in a 3.4 percent increase when com- 
pared to 1979, with 5,622 persons arrested. 

78 percent of the total number of persons arrested for 
Aggravated Assault were adults, while 22 percent were juveniles. 
50 percent of the total were black, 49 percent white, and 1 percent 
of other races. 86 percent of the total were males, while 14 per- 
cent were females. 

The age group with the greatest concentration of arrests 
was the 25-29 age group with 852 arrests or 15 percent of the total

BREAKING OR 
ENTERING 




BREAKING OR ENTERING 

Breaking or Entering is defined as the unlawful entry of a 
structure to commit a felony or a theft. 

Data collection for this offense is further categorized as 
to forcible entries, unlawful entries where no force is used, and 
attempted forcible entries. 

As with other Property Crimes, the motive of personal gain 
coupled with the element of opportunity, results in the commission 
of this offense by both the amateur and the professional perpetrator. 
Only the absence of confrontation and use of force separate this crime 
from Robbery of the Violent Crime group. 

The volume of this offense presents the police with a seri- 
ous enforcement problem, made more difficult in many areas, by the 
lack of sufficient personnel to act as a deterrent and to provide 
successful solutions to these crimes. 



Volume 

In 1980, a total of 71,130 Breaking or Enterings were re- 
ported to Maryland law enforcement agencies. In comparison, there 
were 62,657 Breaking or Enterings in 1979, resulting in a 14 percent 
increase. 

Breaking or Enterings made up 29 percent of the Property 
Crime category and 25.6 percent of the total Crime Index. 

A monthly analysis reveals that December had the highest 
frequency of occurrence while February had the lowest frequency. 
In 1979, August and October showed the highest frequencies and Febru- 
ary showed the lowest. 



Rate 

The Breaking or Entering Rate was 1,696.8 per 100,000 in- 
habitants of Maryland during 1980. In 1979, there were 1,510.2 
Breaking or Entering victims per 100,000 population. In comparison, 
this results in a 12.4 percent increase in the Breaking or Entering 
Rate. 

Nature 

In 1980, 77.2 percent of the Breaking or Enterings invol- 
ved forcible entry, 13.2 percent were unlawful entries (without force' 
and 9.7 percent were recorded as attempted forcible entries. 



64 



In comparison, 76.7 percent were forcible entry, 13.3 percent were 
unlawful entries, and 10.0 percent were attempted forcible entries 
during 1979. 

67.2 percent of all Breaking or Enterings were committed 
in a residence, while 32.8 percent were committed in a nonresidence 
structure. During 1979, 61.7 percent were committed in a residence, 
while 38.3 percent were committed in a nonresidence structure. 

The average dollar value loss for Breaking or Entering was 
$937. This compares to 1979 with $588, and results in a 59.4 percent 
increase. 



Clearances 

In 1980. law enforcement agencies in Maryland were success- 
ful in clearing 17 percent of the total Breaking or Entering Offenses, 
of which 35 percent involved juveniles. During 1979, police cleared 
19 percent of the total Breaking or Enterings, with 40 percent of 
that number involving juveniles. 



Persons Arrested 

In 1980, there were 13,983 persons arrested in Maryland 
for Breaking or Entering. When compared to 1979, with 13,883 
arrests, there is a .7 percent increase in Breaking or Entering 
arrests. 

49 percent of the total number of persons arrested for 
Breaking or Entering were adults, while 51 percent were juveniles. 
53 percent of the total were white, 46 percent were black, and 1 
percent of other races. 94 percent of the total were males, while 
the remaining 6 percent were females. 

The greatest concentration of arrests was in the 13-14 
year old age group with 12 percent of the total number of persons 
arrested for Breaking or Entering.

LARCENY 




LARCENY 



Larceny-Theft is defined as the unlawful taking, carrying, 
leading, or riding away of property from the possession or construc- 
tive possession of another. It includes such crimes as pocket-pick- 
ing, shoplifting, purse snatching, thefts from autos, thefts of auto 
parts and accessories, bicycle theft, etc. In the UCR Program, this 
category does not include embezzlement, fraud, forgery, and worthless 
checks. Motor Vehicle Theft, being a special problem, is a separate 
Crime Index Offense and is not reported in the Larceny-Theft category. 

Larceny Offenses cleared by police arrest are dramatically 
affected by the nature of the crime. As with other Property Crimes, 
opportunity and stealth, working in favor of the perpetrator and 
against police detection, reduce solutions for this offense. 

As with other Offenses against Property, Larceny is prima- 
rily a crime of opportunity. Types of Larcenies will differ in vol- 
ume depending upon the opportunity for theft offered in a given area. 

The average dollar loss in this category was $282 as com- 
pared to 1979, with an average loss of $218, and results in a 29.4 
percent increase. A very small portion of goods stolen are recovered 
and returned to victims, due to a low clearance rate and lack of 
specific identification characteristics on such property. In addi- 
tion, many offenses in this category, particularly where the value 
of goods stolen is small, never come to police attention. 



Volume 

In 1980, there were 152,089 Offenses of Larceny-Theft 
reported as compared to 1979 with 145,278 Offenses and a 5 percent 
increase. Larceny-Theft makes up 54.7 percent of the Crime Index 
total and 62.8 percent of the Property Crime total. 

August shows the highest frequency of Larceny Offenses in 
a monthly analysis, while February shows the lowest. This compares 
with 1979, when July showed the highest frequency and February 
showed the lowest. 



Rate 

The Larceny Crime Rate was 3,628.1 per 100,000 inhabitants 
of Maryland during 1980. In 1979, there were 3,501.5 Larcenies per 
100,000 population, resulting in a 3.6 percent increase in the Lar- 
ceny Rate. 



70 



Nature 

Larcenies of Auto Parts and Accessories recorded the high- 
est percentage with 26.2 percent of the total Larcenies reported in 
this category. Pocket-Picking had the lowest frequency with a .9 
percent of the total. In 1979, Larcenies of Auto Parts and Accesso- 
ries had the highest frequency with a 27.7 percent of the total while 
Pocket-Picking had the lowest frequency with .9 percent. 



Clearances 

In 1980, law enforcement agencies cleared 18 percent of 
the total Larceny-Theft Offenses, of which 33 percent of the total 
clearances involved juveniles. This demonstrates the involvement 
of the young age group in the Larceny-Theft category. In 1979, 
police cleared 18 percent of the total Larceny Offenses with 36 
percent of that number involving a juvenile arrest. 



Persons Arrested 

There were 29,996 persons arrested for Larceny in Maryland 
during 1980. In comparison to 1979, with 28,865 Larceny arrests, 
there was a 3.9 percent increase in the number of persons arrested. 

41 percent of the total persons arrested for Larceny were 
under 18 years of age. However, when individuals under the age of 
21 were considered, the percentage rose to 63 percent of the total. 

Females comprised 25 percent of all arrests for Larceny, 
and had a greater involvement in this offense than in any of the 
other Crime Index Offenses. 

55.7 percent of all persons arrested for Larceny were 
black, 43.7 percent were white, and .6 percent were of other races. 

The greatest concentration of arrests for Larceny was in 
the 25-29 age group, with 11 percent of the total Larceny arrests.

MOTOR VEHICLE 

THEFT 




MOTOR VEHICLE THEFT 

Motor Vehicle Theft is defined as the theft or attempted 
theft of a motor vehicle. This definition excludes taking a motor 
vehicle for temporary use, such as a family situation or unauthori- 
zed use by others having lawful access to the vehicle, such as 
chauffeurs, etc. 

The crime of Motor Vehicle Theft has been labeled pri- 
marily as a crime of opportunity. The youthful offender finds the 
motor vehicle easily accessible for transportation for any purpose. 
The remaining thefts are mainly for the purpose of resale, theft of 
parts, and for use in committing other crimes. 



Volume 

In 1980, there were 18,885 Motor Vehicle Thefts reported 
to law enforcement agencies in the State of Maryland. This is a 
7 percent decrease when compared to the 20,217 Motor Vehicle Thefts 
reported in 1979. Motor Vehicle Theft makes up 7.8 percent of the 
Property Offense category and 6.8 percent of the Index Offenses. 

A monthly analysis for 1980 indicates that more motor 
vehicles were stolen during August than other months, and February 
showed the fewest being stolen. During 1979, October had the 
greatest frequency of Motor Vehicle Thefts and February showed 
the fewest number being stolen. 



Rate 

The Motor Vehicle Theft Rate of 450.5 per 100,000 inhabi- 
tants is 8 percent lower than the rate of 487.3 per 100,000 inhabi- 
tants for 1979. 



Nature 

Automobiles accounted for 71.4 percent of the total number 
of vehicles stolen. Trucks and buses made up 10.4 percent and other 
motor vehicles comprised 18.1 percent of the total. 

67.3 percent of the stolen value was recovered. This is 
a 1 percent decrease when compared to the 68.1 percent of the stolen 
value recovered in 1979. 



76 



Clearances 

In 1980, law enforcement agencies cleared 16 percent of the 
Motor Vehicle Thefts, when compared to the 18 percent cleared in 1979. 

33 percent of the total clearances for Motor Vehicle Theft 
involved juveniles during 1980, the same as in 1979. 

Persons Arrested 

3,556 persons were arrested in Maryland for Motor Vehicle 
Theft during 1980. This results in an 8.8 percent decrease when 
compared to the 3,900 arrests in 1979. 

Of the total persons arrested for Motor Vehicle Theft, 48 
percent were adults and 52 percent juveniles. 51 percent of the 
total were white, while 49 percent were black. 92 percent of the 
total persons arrested for Motor Vehicle Theft were males and 8 per- 
cent were females. 

The greatest concentration of arrests was in the 16 year 
old age group which represents 15 percent of the total persons 
arrested for Motor Vehicle Theft.

ARSON 

Arson is defined as any willful or malicious burning or 
attempt to burn, with or without intent to defraud, a dwelling house, 
public building, motor vehicle or aircraft, personal property of 
another, etc. Only fires determined through investigation to have 
been willfully or maliciously set are classified as Arsons. Fires 
of suspicious or unknown origins are excluded. 

Arson offenses frequently occur in conunction with other 
index crimes, e.g., Breaking or Entering. However, according to UCR 
procedures in such multiple offense situations, only one crime is 
selected on the basis of an established hierarchy. For example, if 
a Breaking or Entering and Arson occurred at the same time and place, 
only the Breaking or Entering would be reported if the crimes were 
subjected to the hierarchy rule of reporting index offenses. This 
assumes that Arson would be listed subordinate to Breaking or Enter- 
ing in the hierarchy. Arson has been excluded from this hierarchi- 
cal procedure, and regardless of its occurrence in conjunction with 
another crime against property or crime against a person, the Arson 
is reported. 

'Volume 

In 1980, there were 3,863 Arsons reported. November and 
December showed the highest frequency of occurrence, while May 
showed the lowest. 

Nature 

The most frequent target of Arsons in 1980 were structures, 
comprising 56 percent of. the total reported incidents. Mobile (motor 
vehicles, trailers, airplanes, boats, etc.) and other property (crops, 
timber, fences, signs, etc.) accounted for the remaining offenses 
with 17 and 27 percent respectively. 

Residences comprised 55 percent of the structures at which 
Arsons were directed. 18 percent of all targeted structural property 
was uninhabited or abandoned at the time the Arson occurred. 

The total monetary value of property damaged, due to repor- 
ted Arsons during 1980, was over 26 million dollars with an average 
loss per incident of $6,894. Industrial/manufacturing structures 
registered the highest average loss at $27,535 per offense. 



r This is the first complete year of Arson data reported to Uniform 
Crime Reporting; therefore, there is no comparison made to previous 
years' data and no inclusion in the Crime Index figures. 



82 



Clearances 

21 percent of all reported Arsons were cleared by arrest 
or exceptional means in 1980. Persons under 18 accounted for 44 per- 
cent of the reported Arson offenses. 



Persons Arrested 

In 1980, there were 756 persons arrested in Maryland for 
Arson. 

44 percent of the total number of persons arrested for 
Arson were adults, while 56 percent were juveniles. 71 percent of 
the total were white and 29 percent were black. 90 percent of the 
total were males, while the remaining 10 percent were females. 

The greatest concentration of arrests was in the 13-14 
year old age group, with 17 percent of the total Arson arrests.

INDEX OFFENSE DATA 



The tables contained within this section were designed to 
facilitate quick reference of statistical crime information relative 
to the different reporting areas of the State of Maryland. 

The tables are broken down by Regions. Within each Region 
information is listed in County name sequence and is further detailed 
to show the activity experienced by individual police agencies. The 
general identifying descriptions which indicate the reporting areas 
are listed and defined as follows: 

Region Total - This line indicates the total activity of 

all the Counties within the indicated Region,

The tabulations in this section indicate the volume of Crime 
in Maryland. The measure used is a Crime Index consisting of seven 
offenses which are counted as they become known to the law enforcement 
agencies. Crime classifications used in the Index are: Murder and 
Nonnegligent Manslaughter, Forcible Rape, Robbery, Aggravated Assault, 
Breaking or Entering, Larceny-Theft, and Motor Vehicle Theft*. 

*Arson figures included are not computed in the total offenses or 
crime rates.

Example: 



Estimated population of the State,

tion, representative of 1980, was 
provided by the Federal Bureau of 
Investigation. 

This is the sum total of the seven 
Index Offenses. 

The sum total of the seven Index 
Offenses cleared. 

The percentage of Index Offenses 
cleared by arrest or exceptional 
means. The mathematical formula 
may be expressed as follows: 

_ Total Index Offenses Cleared 

Total Actual Index Offenses Reported x 100 

This rate is the number of Index 
Offenses per 100,000 population. 
To compute a crime rate, you must 
divide the population by 100,000 
and divide the number of offenses 
by that answer. 

Population for Region I = 295,824

Crime Rate for Region I = 4,909.4 



Crime Rates for the individual agencies are not calculated in 
the following table because of overlapping jurisdiction in many cities 
of municipal, county and state law enforcement agencies. This table 
contains the offenses reported by the individual agencies with crime 
rates for the county and region totals. Arson offenses in this table 
are listed opposite the agency reporting the arson. In the Municipa- 
lity Table, the Arsons are listed in the municipality where they 
occurred.

MUNICIPALITY CRIME RATES 



Crime Rates for the individual cities are calculated in the 
following table. The rates for many cities are based on combined 
figures of municipal, county and state Law Enforcement Agencie. 
to overlapping jurisdictions.* 



*Crime Rates for individual cities in Prince George's County are not 
calculated in this publication because of the overlapping jurisdictions 
At this time Prince George's County Police Department is unable to fur- 
nish the Maryland UCR Program with a breakdown of crime for the munici- 
palities in their jurisdiction. Therefore, to have computed a crime 
rate for many cities in Prince George's County would have given a mis 
leading picture of the crime problem in those areas.

MARYLAND 
ARREST DATA 



ARREST DATA 



The Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting Program requires the 
submission of monthly reports of data concerning persons arrested in 
the state. A record of total arrest activity for criminal acts in 
both Part I and Part II crime classes is received from 134 county, 
state and municipal law enforcement agencies, according to the age, 
sex and race of persons arrested. Traffic arrests, except Driving 
While Intoxicated, are not reported. A total of 185,252 arrests for 
Part I and Part II criminal offenses were reported during 1980. In 
comparison to 1979, there were 180,742 arrests which results in a 
2.5 percent increase. Based on 1980 population estimates, there 
were 4,419.2 arrests per 100,000 population in Maryland. The arrest 
rate for 1979 was 4,356.3, resulting in a 1.4 percent increase in 
arrest rate. 

A person is counted on the monthly arrest report each time 
he is arrested. It should be noted that a person may be arrested 
several times during a given month for the same or different offenses. 
This occurs frequently in a crime such as Disorderly Conduct. A juve- 
nile is counted as "arrested" when the circumstances are such that if 
he or she were an adult an arrest would be counted, or when police or 
other official action beyond a mere interview, warning or admonish- 
ment is taken. 

Arrest figures do not indicate the number of individuals 
arrested or summonsed since, as has been pointed out, one person may 
be arrested several times during the month. However, arrest infor- 
mation is useful in measuring the extent of law enforcement activi- 
ties in a given geographic area, as well as providing an index for 
measuring the involvement in criminal acts, by the age, sex and race 
of perpetrators. 

32 percent of all reported arrests during 1980 were for 
Part I Offenses (Murder, Manslaughter, Forcible Rape, Robbery, 
Aggravated Assault, Breaking or Entering, Larceny-Theft, and Motor 
Vehicle Theft). Analysis of Part I arrest data indicates that 
Larceny comprised the highest percentage of all arrests for Part I 
crimes, with 50 percent of the total. The same trend for Larceny 
occurred in 1979 with 49 percent of the total. The Drug Abuse, 
Driving Under the Influence, Disorderly Conduct, and All Other 
Offense categories continue to record the highest percentage of 
arrests for Part II Offenses. These offenses accounted for 64 
percent of the total Part II Offenses in 1980. 



Violent Crime 

Arrests for crimes of violence (Murder, Forcible Rape. 
Robbery, and Aggravated Assault) on a statewide basis amounted tc 



113 



20.2 percent of arrests for Part I Offenses and 6.5 percent of the 
total arrests in 1980, as compared to 20.3 percent of arrests for 
the Part I Offenses and 6.5 percent of total arrests in 1979. A 
further evaluation indicates that arrests for Robbery and Aggravated 
Assault were the most frequent, representing 41 and 48 percent re- 
spectively of the total arrests for Violent Crimes. 



Property Crime 

Property Crime arrests (Breaking or Entering, Larceny- 
Theft and Motor Vehicle Theft) comprised 79.8 percent of all arrests 
for Part I Offenses and 25.7 percent of the total arrests in 1980, 
as compared to 79.6 percent of all arrests for Part I Offenses and 

25.8 percent of the total arrests in 1979. 

The highest percentage of Property Crime arrests, 63.1 
percent, occurred in the Larceny category, the same as in 1979, with 

61.9 percent of the total. 



Drug Abuse Violation Arrests 

Information pertaining to Drug Abuse Violation arrests is 
collected according to specific drug categories and whether the 
arrest was for Sale or Manufacture or Possession of the specific 
drug. During 1980, a total of 14,162 arrests for Drug Abuse Law 
Violations was reported, as compared to 1979 with 12,334 arrests, 
resulting in a 14.8 percent increase. 

Evaluation of data reported discloses that 50 percent of 
all persons arrested for Drug Abuse Violations were under 21 years 
of age. 56 percent of all persons arrested for Drug Abuse Viola- 
tions were under 21 in 1979. 27 percent of the Drug Abuse Viola- 
tion arrests were for persons under the age of 18 as compared to 
33 percent in 1979. 

Analysis of individual categories showed that the highest 
percentage of arrests, 76.4 percent, involved marijuana, as compared 
to 75.8 percent in 1979. 80 percent of the total Drug Abuse Arrests 
were for Possession while 20 percent were for Sale or Manufacture. 
In 1979, 81 percent were for Possession while 19 percent were for 
Sale or Manufacture. Possession of Marijuana represented 65.0 per- 
cent of the total Drug Abuse arrests, as compared to 1979 with 65.5 
percent of the total . 



Gambling Arrests 

A total of 720 Gambling arrests were reported during 1980. 
In 1979, 1,008 persons were arrested for Gambling violations, result- 
ing in a 29 percent decrease. 



114 



Arrests for Gambling offenses amounted to .4 percent of all 
reported Part I and Part II arrests, compared to .6 percent in 1979. 
Persons under the age of 18 made up 11 percent of all Gambling arrests 
compared to 10 percent in 1979. The 30-34 age category had the high- 
est percentage of Gambling arrests with 11 percent of the total as 
compared to the 10 percent of the total for 25-29 and 40-44 age cate- 
gories, which had the highest percentages in 1979.

EMPLOYEE DATA 



LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS KILLED 



One law enforcement officer was killed in Maryland during 
1980. The following summary is based on information provided by the 
Federal Bureau of Investigation who conducts in-depth investigations 
into these tragic incidents in which law enforcement officers have 
made the supreme sacrifice in the performance of their duties. 

In the previous five years fifteen Maryland Police officers 
have been feloniously killed and six officers killed accidentally. 



FEBRUARY 2, 1980 

A 22-year-old Pr. George's County Police Department officer 
was slain while attempting to arrest a man he believed to possess 
illegal drugs. The off-duty victim was working as a security guard 
at a local liquor store when he observed one of the store's custo- 
mers displaying what appeared to be marijuana. Upon following the 
male from the store, the officer called for a backup unit on his 
portable police radio and then confronted the male, who ran from 
the scene. Apparently, when the officer caught the suspect, a 
struggle ensued during which the victim was disarmed and shot twice 
in the head with his own .380-caliber handgun. A 27-year-old sus- 
pect was arrested and charged with the officer's murder. The vic- 
tim officer, who had 1 year of law enforcement service, was dead on 
arrival at a local hospital.

LAW ENFORCEMENT 
OFFICERS ASSAULTED 



The following information is based on a detailed monthly 
collection of data in the Uniform Crime Reporting System regarding 
the problem of assaults on local, county and state law enforcement 
officers. The large number of reported assaults on sworn officers 
is in part due to a prevalent attitude of disrespect for law en- 
forcement in certain elements of our society. 

A total of 3,452 law enforcement officers in Maryland 
were victims of assault in the line of duty during 1980, as com- 
pared to 3,339 assaults during 1979, resulting in a 3.4 percent 
increase. 

The rate of assaults on law enforcement officers for the 
state was 31 assaults for every 100 sworn officers, as compared to 
30 assaults per 100 sworn officers in 1979. 

Physical force was used in 84.5 percent of all assaults 
on pol ice officers. 

The greatest number of assaults (1,324) or 38.4 percent 
occurred while officers were responding to disturbance calls (fam- 
ily disputes, man with a gun, etc.). 34.1 percent of assaults on 
police officers occurred between 10:00 P.M. and 2:00 A.M. 

A total of 3,399 assaults on law enforcement officers 
were cleared during 1980, amounting to a 98.5 percent clearance 
rate, as compared to the 98.0 percent clearance rate in 1979.

LAW ENFORCEMENT 
EMPLOYEE DATA 



Police Employee Data 

The Uniform Crime Reporting Program in Maryland incorpo- 
rates the collection of pertinent data relating to the police of 
the State. Information regarding police employee strength is dis- 
cussed in this section. 

This information is submitted by county, municipal, and 
state law enforcement agencies and compiled on an annual basis. 
Specific information concerning the number of law enforcement em- 
ployees reflects the status as of October 31, 1980. 



Law Enforcement Employee Rates 

In 1980, the average number of full-time law enforcement 
employees (county, municipal and state) including civilian employ- 
ees, amounted to 3.3 for each 1,000 inhabitants of the State. The 
rate based on sworn personnel only (excluding civilians), amounted 
to 2.7 per 1,000 population. In 1979, the average number of full- 
time law enforcement employees amounted to 3.3 for each 1,000 in- 
habitants and 2.7 sworn personnel per 1,000 inhabitants of the 
State. There was no increase in the average number of law enforce- 
ment employees or the average number of sworn personnel. 

The ratio of law enforcement employees per 1,000 popula- 
tion in any given area or municipality is influenced by a number 
of factors, much the same as the crime rate. The determination 
of law enforcement strength for a given county or municipality is 
based on factors such as population density, size and character 
of the community, geographic location, proximity to metropolitan 
areas, and other conditions which exist in the a^ea generating 
the need for law enforcement services. Employee ^ates also differ 
among agencies since, in particular, there is a wide variation in 
the responsibilities and level of activity within various law en- 
forcement agencies. The information in this section relates to 
reported police employee strength and should not be interpreted 
as recommended strength for any area. 



Civilian Employees 

The personnel of each law enforcement agency differ as 
to the demands and responsibilities placed before them. Many 



163 



police officers are fully occupied with clerical tasks and are not 
free to perform active police duties. Some police administrators 
use civilians in this capacity, thus freeing the sworn personnel 
for actual police related services. 

As of October 31, 1980, 2,717 or 19 percent of the total 
number of police employees in Maryland were civilians, as compared 
to 2,507 or 18 percent in 1979. 



Municipalities 

As of October 31, 1980, municipal police departments 
reported a total of 5,068 employees. This represents a rate of 
4.1 police employees per 1,000 population and a rate of 3.5 sworn 
personnel per 1,000 population, as compared to 4.0 police employees 
per 1,000 population in 1979, and a 3.4 sworn personnel rate per 
1,000 population. There were 4,282 sworn officers and 786 civilian 
employees in 1980, as compared to 4,257 sworn officers and 760 ci- 
vilians in 1979. The sworn personnel represents 84 percent of the 
total employees and the civilians 16 percent. In 1979, sworn per- 
sonnel represented 85 percent of total employees and the civilians 
amounted to 15 percent. 



Counties 

This category includes data from County Police Depart- 
ments, Sheriff's Departments and State Police. Combined, they 
reported as of October 31, 1980, a total of 7,471 police employees. 
This amounts to a ratio of 2.5 police employees per 1,000 popula- 
tion and a ratio of 2.0 sworn personnel per 1,000 population, as 
compared to 2.4 police employees per 1,000 population and 1.9 
sworn personnel per 1,000 population for 1979. There were 5,839 
sworn personnel and 1,632 civilian personnel. The sworn personnel 
represent 78 percent of the total, and the civilians 22 percent. 
In 1979, sworn personnel represented 80 percent of the total em- 
ployees and the civilians amounted to 20 percent. 

The Parks, Tolls, College and University Police accounted 
for 1,431 sworn and civilian police employees. This represents 10 
percent of the total police employees. These figures are not in- 
cluded in the above statistics of municipal and county categories. 

Any attempt to break down the categories above (County 
Police Departments, Sheriff's Departments and State Police) on a 
statewide basis would be misleading as they have overlapping and 
concurrent jurisdiction in many areas. Therefore, these cate- 
gories have been combined in order to represent the best possible 
ratios of police employees to the current population.
